RAAF DESERT WW2 FLIGHT GEAR

RAAF DESERT WW2 FLIGHT GEAR

I have now acquired RAAF Africian campaign desert flightgear – shirt and pants.
This gear was worn in Mediterrain and North Africian campaigns due to the material been light weight, easy to wash and was built with mesh material thus it was more breathable than other fliying gear used.
The material is a khaki colour and was useful as it was able to blend into the desert sand easily if shot down. Could also provide a problem if trying to be found…
